About Dr. Kole

Driven by Supporting His Community

I realized early in my training that I wanted to help patients suffering from cancer. Radiation Oncology offered a way for me to do this while also satisfying my interests in engineering and technology. Valley Hospital has a long history of commitment to the community for delivering state-of-the-art care to cancer patients in their own backyard. Growing up in Montclair NJ, I dreamed of one day returning home to serve the Northern NJ community of cancer patients by providing cutting edge and evidence based cancer care.

I am excited by the progression of radiation technology to allow for more precise treatment delivery which has made shorter overall treatment courses possible along with improved quality of life. I look forward to the evolution of combined focal radiotherapy and immunotherapy in an effort to stimulate an immune response against tumors. I take pride that every day I have the opportunity to provide hope to my patients and possibly make someone smile that otherwise might not have.
